Wireless card RTL8821CE 802.11 ac 1x1 WiFi

HP Recommended
HP Notebook 1NB71EA#ABF
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, I bought this card to replace the one in my HP Notebook 1NB71EA#ABF (to increase wifi speed)
Before replacing it, I would like to know if there is a risk or if the bios are to be modified.
Thank you for your answer

Hi:

 

The RTL8821CE wifi card will be plug and play.

 

You will not have to do any modifications.

 

The hardest thing to do will be opening your notebook and to be very careful with removing and replacing the antenna wire.

 

Here is a video for how to remove and replace the same type card in a different model notebook...

Your notebook's wifi card may not have the plastic cover on the wifi card.
